Mapping the South African response to Covid-1


The COVID-19 pandemic is an unprecedented crisis in South Africa. The tracking of infections, recoveries and deaths has become a daily feature of the news cycle.

The pandemic, however, has also resulted in an unprecedented response from all sectors in society including the state, NGOs, social investors, foundations, companies, funders, individuals and development agencies.


To capture the response and to provide insight into which interventions are taking place, Tshikululu Social Investments is mapping the response to the pandemic. The purpose of this project is to build a dynamic map which tracks the interventions of social investors throughout South Africa.


By mapping the social investment taking place in South Africa, a level of transparency will be introduced that will build trust and will let South Africans know what is happening and where. Our aim is to map the interventions of as many role players in order to show an integrated picture of how social investors are participating in mitigating the effects of Covid-19 on South Africans.


The map will be a reflection of a multi-sector response to a humanitarian crisis. The story of how South Africans responded when the country needed them most. We are aware that your organisation has responded to Covid-19. We would like to invite you to be a part of this project by including your intervention and programme in the map.


If you are interested we would send you a tool to capture your report in. We would also sign a non-disclosure agreement to ensure the protection of your data. The map will show a high-level and integrated picture of interventions from a multitude of funders.
